Computer Networks are the enabler of the Information Age: they empower a large portion of the technological advancements of the past decade and they have become very sophisticated and critical systems. Networks are intrinsically distributed, heterogeneous and dynamic, thus making their design, management and troubleshooting very challenging. AI/ML offer a series of powerful tools and methods to tackle these challenges, ranging from network assurance, security, intelligent control to self-healing and from anomaly detection, root cause detection, prediction to forecasting. However, a large portion of this field remains to be explored. In this track we explore some of the latest advancements and host an open panel to discuss the most promising future directions.
